M-minus inserts a tag which can be removed using C-return (just before
the end of the tag). It is true, however, that we might add a simple keystroke
for re-activation.

The behaviour of the "with" tag is a bit special, because it is frequent and
most people usually don't want to manually edit the attributes.
